Turnkey Service Tomato Production Machinery 1 ~ 20 T/H Good After
Product description of tomato processing plant
The tomato processing line can produce different kinds of final
products from fresh tomatoes. Popular products such as ketchup,
ketchup and ketchup, tomato juice processing lines, from fresh
tomato production to final products, use barreled aseptic bags.
The processing line mainly includes: fresh tomato receiving system,
washing system, sorting system, crushing system, pulping refining
system, filtration system, concentration system, sterilization
system, aseptic filling system. Then we can get the ketchup in the
aseptic bag in the barrel.
Ketchup in barrels aseptic bags can further produce ketchup,
sauces, juices, and can be filled in small bags, stand-up bags,
metal cans, PP containers, bottles, gable tops, etc.

The key process of the tomato paste processing line
Now Shanghai Gofun machinery company will introduce the information
of tomato paste processing line to show it works.
1. Discharge platform
When fresh tomato come, normally with big truck, if discharge with
human, it would be very difficult. So, we design the discharge
platform and use water gun to discharge fresh fruit/tomato from
truck, also use water to delivery fresh fruit/tomato to the
processing line. And there is another function of the discharge
platform, it can pre-wash fresh fruit/tomato before processing.
This machine is used to delivery fresh fruit from outside the
building to inside.
Before crushing, need to washing fresh fruit carefully. For washing
we can use bubble washing machine and spray washing machine
together. If the washing requirement is high, more stages of
washing can be added. Also, for better cleaning effect, we can add
ultrasonic cleaning and ozone cleaning.
After washing, the surface of the fruit is clean, we can check the
situation of all the fruit by human eye, and sort out the bad
tomatoes by human.
5. Crushing for tomato processing
GFM-FC series crusher has most advanced working principle, higher
accuracy of manufacture and best crushing functions. The machine is composed of feed hopper, side cover, frame,
principal axis, bearing block, motor, motor structure, outlet
hopper etc.It is mainly used for crushing of many kinds of fruits or
vegetables, for example: tomato, apple, pear, strawberry, celery,
etc. it can crush the raw materials into small particles, which
could increase the working effect of next processing section.
The pre-heater is used to heat the product after crusher, the
temperature is adjustable, normally from 45℃ to 85℃. This
processing step, would help to higher the juice rate for next step,
and also can protect the color and taste of the final product.
7. Pulper and refiner
This machine is also running with speed of 1470 r/min, it causes
the centrifugal force and the product will go through screen, helps
to refine the product. The double stage pulping machine for tomato pulp yield rate can reach 90%~95%.
Vacuum Evaporator is used for concentrating the tomato paste under
vacuum and low temperature. Here we are using Forced Circulation
Vacuum Evaporator. And right now, we evaporate the water from the
tomato pulp, then we will get the tomato paste, normally the Brix
is 28-30% and 36-38%.
For tomato paste, we use a tube-in-tube sterilizer for
sterilization. Sterilization temperature and holding time are
adjustable. Using this machine, we heat the tomato sauce to a very
high temperature of around 115°C, hold it for 30 seconds, and then
immediately cool it down to ambient temperature.
10. Aseptic Filling
The aseptic filling machine works together with the tube in tube
type sterilizer. It’s a closed cycle. Before production, the cycle
will be fully sterilized to make sure the aseptic environment. Using mirror welding tech to ensure tidy and smooth welding line.
Separate control panel. CIP and auto SIP available together with
sterilizer. Easy to adjust to match the different volumes and sizes
of aseptic bags.
11. Storage or go blending
The finished product can be stored or used as a raw material for
ketchup or ketchup.
